Pumpkin Waffles with Buttermilk Syrup

Who wants Pumpkin Pie for breakfast???

 I DO!!  I DO!!

That’s exactly what these delicious waffles taste like.  Soooooo delicious!!  My friends mother made them for us – and she got the recipe for the waffles HERE.

2 things happened when I had these waffles…

1st – I had to really convince myself not to run out and buy the waffle iron she used.  It was AWESOME!!!  Then I saw the price – and – well – :0(

But it made 1.5″ thick waffles – and the iron was deep set so there was no spillage.  WONDERFUL!!  The outside was perfectly crispy while the inside was fluffy.  Put this one on your wish list for sure!!

My waffle iron – it did okay.  I was happy to see that the waffles did fluff up quite a bit.  Not quite the 1.5″ thick gloriousness that I had previously enjoyed – but fluffy.  Not so crispy on the exterior.  That crunch you get with a belgian waffle iron added quite a bit to the whole experience…

Maybe one day Williams Sonoma will read this post and say “That girl deserves that waffle iron just for existing.”  ha ha.  A girl can dream, right?

The recipe for the syrup – she wasn’t sure where it came from – but it’s pretty simple:

Buttermilk Syrup

In a medium saucepan (because it foams up and expands)

1 stick real butter

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup buttermilk

*melt over medium heat in a saucepan

*remove from heat when it starts to boil

*add 1 tsp. baking soda

*add 1 tsp. vanilla

*whisk together and serve

**this syrup will last up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.

This recipe makes12 waffles…my kids DEVOURED them.  I topped them with whipping cream mixed with a little vanilla and sugar and topped the whole thing with a dash of pumpkin pie spice.

Perfect way to jump into October!!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!
